Gear

Nidus Specter


Energy Restores


Usage

Build particularly suited for Infested Arbitrations, although Grineer and Sentient are also fairly easy to fight.


When starting a mission:


Deploy a Specter (skip this step if there is already an allied Nidus with at least 28% Link).


Collect an Energy orb for the Energy Conversion buff.


Wait to get the buff from


ParasiticLink.png Parasitic Link

Parasitic Link
Bind to a target with a parasitic link. For allies, both the host and Nidus gain increased Ability Strength. Linked enemies take the damage inflicted on Nidus.

.


Activate both

and Growing Power while Parasitic Link is active and cast


VexArmor.png Vex Armor

Vex Armor
When shields are hit, Chromas armor grows stronger, when health takes a hit, weapon damage increases. Active for a limited time, maximum increases correspond to rank.
Cost: 75
Warframe: Chroma

.


Obtain 400 shields (using Vazarin's Guardian Blast or Shield Restores) and equip the

.


Shoot at the ground until Fury and Scorn have reached their peak values (by default 1520/1935, other values possible from allies' aura mods or Equinox

/Nidus buffs).


Afterwards, maintain Vex Armor at all times (use energy Restores if necessary), and cast


ElementalWard.png Elemental Ward

Elemental Ward
Depending on Chromas elemental alignment, an offensive area-of-effect is created. Chroma and his nearby allies are imbued with defensive energy.
Cost: 50
Warframe: Chroma

whenever the need to have more HP arises.


Variation

The secondary is meant to be a Tombfinger/Haymaker/<Splat/Killstream> Kitgun with Pax Bolt.


The Primary and Melee weapons can be any weapon built without any base damage mods. This example is merely a personal preference that works decently with little to no aim required.


Without an Umbral Forma, replace

Weaknesses

This build's main weakness consists of losing its Vex Armor (to Nullifiers, pits or just the duration running out).


Thus it is imperative to have energy readily available, be it from pickups, enemy damage being converted or Energy Restores. It is therefore recommended to have Energy Restores bound to a hotkey to be able to recast at a moment's notice.
